Thank You! Best Non-Fiction Book Blog 2010

Thank You! Best Non-Fiction Book Blog 2010 post image

This morning I found out that Sophisticated Dorkiness was voted the Best Non-Fiction Review Blog for Book Blogger Appreciation Week 2010. I can’t even begin to tell you what a huge smile that put on my face.

And then all the congrats from friends and other book bloggers on Twitter — that was just awesome too.

The rest of the shortlisted bloggers — SMS Book Reviews and Mental Foodie — are also amazing blogs, as were all the blogs on the long list and the ones I got to look at for the initial nomination process. Nonfiction doesn’t always get the attention I wish it did in book blogging, but that’s certainly not for lack of quality nonfiction reviews on those blogs and others.

If you’re new to my blog, welcome, and here’s my registration post that links to the posts I submitted.

I’m not sure what else to say except a huge, huge thank you to well, pretty much everyone. This means a lot to me.

  • Iris September 27, 2010, 5:12 am

    I was under the impression that I left a comment on this already, but I think I must’ve made that one up. Anyway, here are my very late congratulations! Very well deserved indeed!

  • David Guion November 15, 2010, 6:37 pm

    This post turned up on a Google search. A pretty good recommendation, so I have decided to follow you. Love your title!

    • Kim November 15, 2010, 7:10 pm

      Thanks, David. I went to your blog to try and leave a comment, but couldn’t find where to do that… it’s been a long day. In any case, I appreciate it!

      • David Guion November 15, 2010, 8:19 pm

        I have Intense Debate on my blogs. You need to open a particular post. The blog I linked to is also a portal to three others, if there’s another that particularly strikes your fancy. But it’s also the one that has my posts on the book business and writing.

  • David Guion November 15, 2010, 8:21 pm

    Hit submit too soon. I intended to include thanks for wanting to visit and comment. Not enough time to read all the books or all the blogs I want to, but I should have taken a few more secs to read my comment before sending it on.

    • Kim November 17, 2010, 6:09 pm

      David: Huh… I still can’t see the comment forms. I’m not sure what’s up with my computer. Blargh!
